Volae Sport on regular ol’ hitch carrier?

Hey guys/gals,

I will be picking up my first ‘bent this week and was wondering if it will fit my hitch bike carrier. My bike carrier is a regular run of the mill, typical 4 bike carrier with two bars that would normally secure the top bar on a regular upright.

Looking at the frame, it seems like I should be able to strap it in somehow, but the bike is a couple of hours away and I was hoping someone here could verify thst mounting it to my carrier *should* work.

Thanks, y’all!

That should work. Removing the seat would reduce effect of wind on bike and might make it a bit easier to secure to rack. Good idea to have extra straps/bungees/velcro on hand in case what's on your rack isn't perfect for your frame.
Good luck and have fun!

Yes a 2-arm bike carrier will work. Do something to keep it from swaying. Also, make sure you at least remove the pad or you will lose it.
